6:34 pm
6:35 pm
there may be hidden health dangers inside your couch. most of the couches contain chemicals that could affect your health. >> fire retardants in couches is an enormous issue. here is what i found out during my investigation. in just a matter of seconds, a couch is up in flames. fire retardants in the foam of the couch delay ignition by 12 seconds but there may be a high price to pay for those 12 seconds. according to a recent study

published in environmental science and technology, flame technology are being used in couches and other products to replace another toxic flame retardant phased out eight years ago because of health dangers associated with it. >> children are exposed to five times the level of what is considered safe and they exceed acceptable cancer risks within the first two years of life. >> reporter: joanna says the chemicals include pbde and compounds known as chlorinated trists, the chemical pulled from children's pajamas in 1977 because of concerns they may be muted genetic. the various chemicals affect

6:38 pm
>> manufacturers are pouring this in the foam in the couch where my kids sit every day. >> reporter: the liquid fire retardant endurance turns to dust when it's in the foam. when you sit on the furniture, it escapes from the foam and attaches to the dust in your home. it can be absorbed in the skin, inhaled and ingested by children crawling on the ground. >> when you have clear evidence of a health fact in animal studies and then you start to see these same associations turn up in the human population, that certainly is the red flag and it's time to really take a close look at the safety of your chemical and take action. >> reporter: no one from the american chemistry council would go on camera but issued a statement. tdcpp was voluntarily removed from children's pajamas in the 1970s by the industry out of an
6:39 pm
abundance of caution. the public should know that flame retardants are used in upholstered furniture to meet fire standards. it's important to note that flame retardants are subject to review by scientists at regulatory agencies. the 2008 e.u. risk assessment for pdcpp using all the best information available concludes that tdcpp gives no reason for concern to human health in relation to the physics chemical properties. couch manufacturers are mandated by law to use it in the foam stuffing. it's a little known law in california known as technical bulletin 17 which says the couch must be able to withstand exposure to a small flame for 12 seconds without igniting. while the regulation applies only to california, manufacturers use it in all the
6:40 pm
products instead of creating special furniture for the west coast. >> that is what is left after a couple minutes of burning. >> i believe fire retardant is good but they should use other chemicals or safe chemicals that doesn't affect the breathing of other people involved in it. they should find other methods to make the fire retardant safer. >> reporter: there are no warning labels so you don't know what chemicals are inside your couch. >> even if i wanted to make a choice about it, i wouldn't have been able to plaque a choice. >> reporter: the problem is, if you want a couch in your home, you most likely don't have a choice. >> unfortunately because the use of flame retardants in furniture and other consumer products is so commonplace, it's hard to avoid exposure. >> it is worth mentioning that under prop 65 tdcpp was added to california's list of
6:41 pm
potential carcinogens in 2011. three of the frequently used fire retardants are under review by the epa. what can you do? this this case there is not a lot you can do to avoid it. there are few companies that make truly organic couches. you can contact your lawmaker about the need for chemical policy reforms there. are some signs of bipartisan support on that issue. next on fox 5 news at 6:00, do you eat before the gym or not. not.
